About Premium Assistance

WCF provides limited insurance premium assistance to cancer patients. As a nonprofit organization, funding depends on the sources of support we receive at any given time. If we do not currently have funding to assist you, please look at our cancer resources or contact us so we can refer you to other financial assistance resources.

In order to qualify for WCF insurance premium assistance, applicants must meet certain eligibility criteria:

  • US Citizen or permanent resident*
  • Meet financial criteria based on household size and household income* (which is 500% of the poverty level according to federal poverty guidelines)
  • Diagnosed with cancer
  • Has, or is in the process of securing, private health insurance, an employer-sponsored health plan or COBRA insurance (applies to primary insurance only)
  • Cancer care or treatment is initiated or received in Sedgwick County

*Supporting documentation may be requested at discretion of WCF, but not required at initial application
